英文演讲稿1

  Life is a choice

  In our daily lives,we have many choices to make,such as what to eat for supper,what clothes to wear,or what to do on weekends. At certain times in our lives,we need to make even more critical choices,such as which school to attend,what job to take or who to choose as husband or wife.

  Yes,life is a mater of choice. Seemingly,it means a choice of tangible things. But in essence,it means choosing a way of life. Life is to be lived,saved,and enjoyed,not to be wasted or complained about.Hardly can we forget the time when our society faced the grave threat from the life-and-death disease-SARS. Yet,even during those dreadful times,some afflicted people remained optimistic. Instead of wearing neutral white masks,some people turned to colorful ones and thus display a happy mood. And some creative people dubbed SARS to mean“Smile And Remain Smiling .” I was deeply touched by their optimistic,nearly forgetting that we are still in a battle,people who survive these kinds of circumstances,decide in their minds to carry on in spite of the overwhelming odds.

  Laid-off workers typically regarded as the victims of economic advancement,are subject to desperation that being unemployed has brought on them. But encouragingly,we have witnessed some of them striving hard to rebuild confidence toward life and discover new opportunities for demonstrating their values.

  Although we cannot choose our appearance,inborn gifts and even avoid unexpected disasters and adversities,we do have the privilege to choose to live optimistically,to love our lives,to have dreams,and to cherish hopes.

  Every morning when we get up,we have a choice of how we want to approach life that day. As for me,I choose to be cheerful.

  Table manners refers to the etiquette used while eating,which may also included how to use the tableware. Different countries have different cultures for table manners. Today I’ll show you the table manners in the east and west. In the east, we use tea-pot, table cloth, plate, chopsticks and so on. For example in China, there are many rules: make the elders have a sit first and the ladies first, before eat meal you should wash your hands, don’t eat too fast or too much, don't speak with your mouth full of food. When eating, please put up the bowl and when finished you should lay your chopsticks on the bowl. Sometimes the Chinese host put food in others bowl or plate in order to show the guests politely.

  Korean food have everything that one expects to find, of course, there are also many table manners. When eating the mouth isn’t making a lot of noise, when finished you need put the chopsticks in the same place.

  In the west, eat different foods need different tableware, this is the formal table setting. The serving order is starters, soup, main course, dessert and drinks. In the USA, you can’t eat with your hands, but in India you can. Next is can or can’t, wash your hands before meal, knife and spoon are on the right, fork is on the left, so You should use the fork with your left hand and the knife with your right hand. Don’t drink too much and speak too loudly. You can eat only from your plate. Attention: when we are in a party, you have only bowl of soup and must finish all the food on your plate. That’s all, thank you

  Ladies and Gentlemen

  I'm only going to talk to you just for a minute or so this evening because I have some -- some very sad news for all of you -- Could you lower those signs please? -- I have some very sad news for all of you and I think sad news for all of our fellow citizens and people who love peace all over the world; and that is that Martin Luther King was shot and was killed tonight in Memphis Tennessee.

  Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. In this difficult day in this difficult time for the United States it's perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. For those of you who are black -- considering the evidence evidently is that there were white people who were responsible -- you can be filled with bitterness and with hatred and a desire for revenge.

  We can move in that direction as a country in greater polarization -- black people amongst blacks and white amongst whites filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort as Martin Luther King did to understand and to comprehend and replace that violence that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land with an effort to understand compassion and love.

  For those of you who are black and are tempted to fill with -- be filled with hatred and mistrust of the injustice of such an act against all white people I would only say that I can also feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed but he was killed by a white man.

  But we have to make an effort in the United States. We have to make an effort to understand to get beyond or go beyond these rather difficult times.

  My favorite poem my -- my favorite poet was Aeschylus. And he once wrote:

  Even in our sleep pain which cannot forget

  falls drop by drop upon the heart

  until in our own despair

  against our will

  comes wisdom

  through the awful grace of God.

  What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness but is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country whether they be white or whether they be black.

  So I ask you tonight to return home to say a prayer for the family of Martin Luther King -- yeah it's true -- but more importantly to say a prayer for our own country which all of us love -- a prayer for understanding and that compassion of which I spoke.

  We can do well in this country. We will have difficult times. We've had difficult times in the past but we -- and we will have difficult times in the future. It is not the end of violence; it is not the end of lawlessness; and it's not the end of disorder.

  But the vast majority of white people and the vast majority of black people in this country want to live together want to improve the quality of our life and want justice for all human beings that abide in our land.

  And let's dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that and say a prayer for our country and for our people.

  Thank you very much.

  As you slowly open your eyes, look around, notice where the light comes into your room; listen carefully, see if there are new sounds you can recognize; feel with your body and spirit, and see if you can sense the freshness in the air.

  Yes, yes, yes, it’s a new day, it’s a different day, and it’s bright day! And most importantly, it’s a new beginning for your life, a beginning where you are going to make new decisions, take new actions, make new friends, and take your life

  to a totally unprecedented level.

  In your mind’s eye, you can see clearly, the things you want to have, the paces you intend to go, the relationships you desire to develop, and the positions you aspire to reach.

  You can hear your laughters of joy and happiness on the day when everything happens as you dream. You can see the smiles on the people around you when the magic moment strikes. You can feel your face is getting red, your heart is beating fast, and your blood is rushing all over your body, to every single corner of your being!

  You know all this is real as long as you are confident, passionate and committed! And you are confident, you are passionate, you are committed!

  You will no longer fear making new sounds, showing new facialexpressions, using your body in new ways, approaching new people, and asking new questions.

  You will live every singleday of your life with absolute passion, and you will show your

  passion through the words you speak and the actions you take.

  You will focus all your time and effort on the most important goals of your life. You will never succumb to challenges of hardships.

  You will never waver in your pursuit of excellence. After all, you are the best, and you deserve

  the best!

  As your coach and friend, I can assure you the door to all the best things in the world will open to you, but the key to that door is in your hand. You must do your part. You must faithfully follow the plans you make and take the actions you plan; you must never quit and you must never fear. I know you must do it, you can do it, you will do it, and you will succeed! Now stand firm and

  tall, make a fist, get excited, and yell it out:

  I must do it! I can do it! I will do it! I will succeed!

  I must do it! I can do it! I will do it! I will succeed!

  I must do it! I can do it! I will do it! I will succeed!

  

英文演讲稿5

  someone said “we are reading the first verse of the first chapter of a book, whose pages are infinite”. i dont know who wrote these words, but ive always liked them as a reminder that the future can be anything we want it to be. we are all in the position of the farmers. if we plant a good seed ,we reap a good harvest. if we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all.

  一些人说我们正在读一本无穷的书中的第一章的第一节。我不知道谁写了这些话,但是我一直很喜欢它,因为它提醒了我,我们能够创造我们想要的未来。

  we are young. “how to spend the youth” it is a meaningful

  question. to answer it, first i have to ask “what do you understand by the word youth” youth is not a time of life, its a state of mind. its not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips or supple knees. its the matter of the will. its the freshness of the deep spring of life.

  我们都是农夫。如果我们播下好的种子,我们将会丰收。如果我们的种子很差,有很多草籽,收割的将是无用的庄稼。如果我们什么也不播种,什么收获也没有。

  youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over

  timidity of the appetite , for adventure over the love of ease. this often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20 . nobody grows old merely by a number of years . we grow old by deserting our ideals. years wrinkle the skin , but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul . worry , fear , self –distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust .

  我们是年轻的。怎样度过青春这是个有意义的问题。为了去回答它,我首先要问从‘青春’这个词中你能理解到什么青春不是人生的一个时期,而是精神的一种状态。青春不是桃面、丹唇、柔膝,而是深沉的意志,。青春是生命的深泉在涌流.

  whether 60 of 16 , there is in every human being s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of whats next and the joy of the game of living . in the center of your heart and my heart theres a wireless station : so long as it receives messages of beauty , hope ,cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long as you are young .

  a poet said “to see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an

  hour. several days ago, i had a chance to listen to a lecture. i learnt a lot there. id like to share it with all of you. lets show our right palms. we can see

  three lines that show how our love.career and life is. i have a short line of life. what about yoursi wondered whether we could see our future in this way. well, lets make a fist. where is our futurewhere is our love, career, and lifetell me.yeah, it is in our hands. it is held in ourselves.

  一位诗人说从一粒沙看世界,从一朵花看天堂,把无限放在你的手掌,永恒在一刹那里收藏。几天前,我有了一个听讲座的机会,从中我学到了很多东西。现在,我想把这些与大家共享。让我们伸出右手,我们可以看到手掌中的展示我们的爱,事业和生活的三条线。我在生活方面这条线很短,那你们的呢我想知道我们是否可以用这种办法去看我们的未来。好的,让我们一起握拳。我们的未来在哪儿我们的爱、事业和生活在哪儿告诉我!是的,它们就在我们的手中。它们被我们自己掌握着。

  we all want the future to be better than the past. but the future can go better itself. dont cry because it is over, smile because it happened. from the past, weve learnt that the life is tough, but we are tougher. weve learnt that we cant choose how we feel, but we can choose what

  my definition of success

  today i am very glad to be here to share with you my ideas of success. what is success? it is what everyone is longing

  for.sometimes success would be rather simple. winning a game is success; getting a high grade in the exam is success; making a new friend is success; even now i am

  standing here giving my speech is somehow also success.

  however, as a person’s whole life is concerned, success becomes very

  complicated. is fortune success? is fame success? is high social status success? no, i don’t think so. i believe success is the realization of people’

  s hopes and ideals.nowadays, in the modern society there are many people

  who are regarded as the successful. and the most obvious

  characteristics of hem are money, high position and luxurious life. so most people believe that s success and all that they do is for this purpose. but the problem is wether it is real success. we all know there are always more money, higher position and better

  condition in front of us. if we keep chasing them, where is the end? what will satisfy us at last? therefore, we can see, to get the real success we must need something inside, which is the realization ofpeople’ hopes and ideals.

  different people have different ideas about success; cause

  people’s hopes and ideas vary from one another. but i am sure every success is dear to everybody, cause it is not easy to come by, cause in the process of our striving for success, we got both our body and soul tempted, meanwhile we are enlightened by the most valuable qualities of human beings: love, patient, courage and sense of

  responsibility. these are the best treasures. so now i am very proud that i have this opportunity to stand here speaking to all of you. it is my success, cause i raise up to challenge my hope.

  what is success? everyone has his own interpretation as i do. but i am sure

  every success leads to an ever-brighter future. so ladies and gentlemen, believe in our hopes, believe in ourselves, we, every one of us, can make a

  successful life!

  i have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed-we hold theses truths to be self-

  oevident, that all men are created equal. i have a dream that one day on the red hills of georgia, sons of former slaves and sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood. i have a dream my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. i have a dream today! when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and hamlet, from every state and city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of god’s children-black men and white men , jews and gentiles, catholics and protestants-will be able to join hands and to sing in

  Once man did not have to think about the protection of his environment. There were few people on the earth, and natural resources seemed to be unlimited.Today things are different. The world has become too crowded. We are using up our natural resources,and polluting our environment with dangerous chemicals. If we continue to do this, human life on earth will not survive. We realize that if too many fish are taken from the sea, there will soon be none left. Yet,with modern fishing methods, more and more fish are caught.We know that if too many trees are cut down, forests will disappear. Yet, we continue to use powerful machines to cut down more and more trees. We see that if rivers are polluted with waste products, we will die. Yet, waste products are still put into rivers.We know that if the population continues to rise at the present rate, in a few years, there wont be enough food.What can we do to solve these problems?If we eat more vegetables and less meat, there will be more food available. Land for crops feeds five times more people than land where animals are kept.Our natural resources will last longer if we learn to recyciethem.

  The world population will not rise so quickly if people use modern methods of birth control.Finally, if we educate people to think about the problems we shall have a better and cleaner planet in the future.

  some have succeeded in the social and economic transition into prosperity, but many others have suffered from stagnation and social turbulence due to inadequate policy-making, he noted.

  "the problems and contradictions china will face in the next decades may be even more complicated and thorny than others" as it is turning from a planned economy to a market economy with its social structure and ideological setup also in major shake-up, hu acknowledged.

  "independent thinking of the general public, their newly-developed penchant for independent choices and thus the widening gap of ideas among different social strata will pose further challenges to china"s policy makers," he said. "negative and corruptive phenomena and more and more rampant crimes in the society will also jeopardize social stability and harmony."

  In view of the international situations, hu noted that building a harmonious society is also a requisite requirement for the chinese authorities to clear away challenges and risks in the international relations, including unfair world order, rocky road of multi-polarization of world political framework, pressure from economic globalization, and security concerns.

  Harmony means democracy, justice ...

  "a harmonious society should feature democracy, the rule of law, equity, justice, sincerity, amity and vitality," hu said.

  Such a society will give full scope to people"s talent and creativity, enable all the people to share the social wealth brought by reform and development, and forge an ever closer relationship between the people and government. "these things will thus result in lasting stability and unity," hu said.

  To meet this goal, hu told the country"s high-ranking officials to:

  -- strive for sustained,

  Rapid and coordinated economic growth;sound economic growth and increasing abundance of social wealth are the material foundation for a harmonious society, and the well-being of the country"s rural population will play a decisive role.

  "When the farmers can lead a good life and assume a higher overall quality, the vast countryside will be stable and prosperous."

  -- develop socialist democracy;

  by developing democracy, the people"s opinions may be further let out, their intelligence be fully absorbed, and a democratic policy-making mechanism will help balance different social interests and avoid social conflicts.

  -- actively enforce the principle of rule of law;

  the rule of law is important for the promotion, realization and safeguarding of a harmonious society. this principle should be rigorously implemented in all political, administrative and judicial sectors to ensure the powerful be checked and accountable for their misdeeds.

  -- strengthen ideological and ethical buildup;

  "without a common ideological aspiration or high moral standard, a harmonious society will be a mansion built on sand." honesty, unity, fraternity, professional ethics should be advocated to the whole society.

  -- maintain social equity and justice;

  Social equity and justice is key to bringing people"s creativity and initiatives to full play, because people will not be happy without it. it is important to balance different interests and strive to ensure equality for all in terms of personal rights, opportunities, game-playing rules and wealth distribution.

  -- establish a fine-tuned social management system and well handle the people"s internal contradictions;

  Social conflicts are emerging in great numbers and in more varied forms, which are inevitable for china at the present stage.but they must be properly handled in case they pose risks to the overall development of the country.

  -- and to beef up environmental protection.

  "The present ecological and environmental situations in china are rather tough and grave in some places." without a sound natural environment, people will have no clean water to drink, fresh air to breath, healthy food to eat, which will result in serious social problems."

  Hu called on the high-ranking officials to put building a harmonious society on their top work agenda, do a good job in serving the people, and probe into theories relating to the building of a harmonious society.

  It will be a long-term, systematic project, and the whole party and the government must constantly remind themselves of the sense of mission and take up their responsibilities in leading the construction of a harmonious society for the smooth transition of the chinese society in the next decades, hu said.

  This is the text of the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 20xx.

  I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, I never graduated from college. This is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.

  斯坦福是世界上最好的大学之一,今天能参加各位的毕业典礼,我备感荣幸。(尖叫声)我从来没有从大学毕业,说句实话,此时算是我离大学毕业最近的一刻。(笑声)今天,我想告诉你们我生命中的三个故事,并非什么了不得的大事件,只是三个小故事而已。

  The first story is about connecting the dots.

  第一个故事关于串起生命中的点点滴滴。

  I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?

  退学是我这一生所做出的最正确的决定之一。我在里德大学待了6个月就退学了,但之后仍作为旁听生混了18个月后才最终离开。我为什么要退学呢?

  It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.

  故事要从我出生之前开始说起。我的生母是一名年轻的未婚妈妈,当时她还是一所大学的在读研究生,于是决定把我送给其他人收养。她坚持我应该被一对念过大学的夫妇收养,所以在我出生的时候,她已经为我被一个律师和他的太太收养做好了所有的准备。但在最后一刻,这对夫妇改了主意,决定收养一个女孩。候选名单上的另外一对夫妇,也就是我的养父母,在一天午夜接到了一通电话:“有一个不请自来的男婴,你们想收养吗?”他们回答:“当然想。”事后,我的生母才发现我的养母根本就没有从大学毕业,而我的养父甚至连高中都没有毕业,所以她拒绝签署最后的收养文件,直到几个月后,我的养父母保证会把我送到大学,她的态度才有所转变。

  And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents' savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.

  17年之后,我真上了大学。但因为年幼无知,我选择了一所和斯坦福一样昂贵的大学,(笑声)我的父母都是工人阶级,他们倾其所有资助我的学业。在6个月之后,我发现自己完全不知道这样念下去究竟有什么用。当时,我的人生漫无目标,也不知道大学对我能起到什么帮助,为了念书,还花光了父母毕生的积蓄,所以我决定退学。我相信车到山前必有路。当时作这个决定的.时候非常害怕,但现在回头去看,这是我这一生所做出的最正确的决定之一。(笑声)从我退学那一刻起,我就再也不用去上那些我毫无兴趣的必修课了,我开始旁听那些看来比较有意思的科目。

  It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5 cent; deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:

  Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating.

  这件事情做起来一点都不浪漫。因为没有自己的宿舍,我只能睡在朋友房间的地板上;可乐瓶的押金是5分钱,我把瓶子还回去好用押金买吃的;在每个周日的晚上,我都会步行7英里穿越市区,到HareKrishna教堂吃一顿大餐,我喜欢那儿的食物。我跟随好奇心和直觉所做的事情,事后证明大多数都是极其珍贵的经验。我举一个例子:那个时候,里德大学提供了全美国最好的书法教育。整个校园的每一张海报,每一个抽屉上的标签,都是漂亮的手写体。由于已经退学,不用再去上那些常规的课程,于是我选择了一个书法班,想学学怎么写出一手漂亮字。在这个班上,我学习了各种字体,如何改变不同字体组合之间的字间距,以及如何做出漂亮的版式。那是一种科学永远无法捕捉的充满美感、历史感和艺术感的微妙,我发现这太有意思了。

  None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, its likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.

  当时,我压根儿没想到这些知识会在我的生命中有什么实际运用价值;但是10年之后,当我们设计第一款Macintosh电脑的时候,这些东西全派上了用场。我把它们全部设计进了Mac,这是第一台可以排出好看版式的电脑。如果当时我大学里没有旁听这门课程的话,Mac就不会提供各种字体和等间距字体。自从Windows系统抄袭了Mac以后,(鼓掌大笑)所有的个人电脑都有了这些东西。如果我没有退学,我就不会去书法班旁听,而今天的个人电脑大概也就不会有出色的版式功能。当然我在念大学的那会儿,不可能有先见之明,把那些生命中的点点滴滴都串起来;但10年之后再回头看,生命的轨迹变得非常清楚。

  Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

  再强调一次,你不可能充满预见地将生命的点滴串联起来;只有在你回头看的时候,你才会发现这些点点滴滴之间的联系。所以,你要坚信,你现在所经历的将在你未来的生命中串联起来。你不得不相信某些东西,你的直觉、命运、生活、因缘际会……正是这种信仰让我不会失去希望,它让我的人生变得与众不同。

  My second story is about love and loss.

  第二个故事关于爱与失去。

  I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

  被苹果开掉是我这一生所经历过的最棒的事情。

  我是幸运的,在年轻的时候就知道了自己爱做什么。在我20岁的时候,就和沃兹在我父母的车库里开创了苹果电脑公司。我们勤奋工作,只用了10年的时间,苹果电脑就从车库里的两个小伙子扩展成拥有4000名员工,价值达到20亿美元的企业。而在此之前的一年,我们刚推出了我们最好的产品Macintosh电脑,当时我刚过而立之年。然后,我就被炒了鱿鱼。一个人怎么可以被他所创立的公司解雇呢?(笑声)这么说吧,随着苹果的成长,我们请了一个原本以为很能干的家伙和我一起管理这家公司,在头一年左右,他干得还不错,但后来,我们对公司未来的前景出现了分歧,于是我们之间出现了矛盾。由于公司的董事会站在他那一边,所以在我30岁的时候,就被踢出了局。我失去了一直贯穿在我整个成年生活的重心,打击是毁灭性的。

  I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

  在头几个月,我真不知道要做些什么。我觉得我让企业界的前辈们失望了,我失去了传到我手上的指挥棒。我遇到了戴维.帕卡德(普惠的创办人之一)和鲍勃.诺伊斯(英特尔的创办人之一),我向他们道歉,因为我把事情搞砸了。我成了人人皆知的失败者,我甚至想过逃离硅谷。但曙光渐渐出现,我还是喜欢我做过的事情。在苹果电脑发生的一切丝毫没有改变我,一个比特都没有。虽然被抛弃了,但我的热忱不改。我决定重新开始。

  I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

  During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

  我当时没有看出来,但事实证明,我被苹果开掉是我这一生所经历过的最棒的事情。成功的沉重被凤凰涅槃的轻盈所代替,每件事情都不再那么确定,我以自由之躯进入了我整个生命当中最有创意的时期。

  在接下来的5年里,我开创了一家叫做NeXT的公司,接着是一家名叫Pixar的公司,并且结识了后来成为我妻子的曼妙女郎。Pixar制作了世界上第一部全电脑动画电影《玩具总动员》,现在这家公司是世界上最成功的动画制作公司之一。(掌声)后来经历一系列的事件,苹果买下了NeXT,于是我又回到了苹果,我们在NeXT研发出的技术成为推动苹果复兴的核心动力。我和劳伦斯也拥有了美满的家庭。

  I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it.

  Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

  我非常肯定,如果没有被苹果炒掉,这一切都不可能在我身上发生。

  生活有时候就像一块板砖拍向你的脑袋,但不要丧失信心。热爱我所从事的工作,是一直支持我不断前进的惟一理由。你得找出你的最爱,对工作如此,对爱人亦是如此。工作将占据你生命中相当大的一部分,从事你认为具有非凡意义的工作,方能给你带来真正的满足感。而从事一份伟大工作的惟一方法,就是去热爱这份工作。如果你到现在还没有找到这样一份工作,那么就继续找。不要安于现状,当万事了于心的时候,你就会知道何时能找到。如同任何伟大的浪漫关系一样,伟大的工作只会在岁月的酝酿中越陈越香。所以,在你终有所获之前,不要停下你寻觅的脚步。不要停下。

  My third story is about death.

  第三个故事关于死亡。

  When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

  在17岁的时候,我读过一句格言,好像是:“如果你把每一天都当成你生命里的最后一天,你将在某一天发现原来一切皆在掌握之中。” (笑声)这句话从我读到之日起,就对我产生了深远的影响。在过去的33年里,我每天早晨都对着镜子问自己:“如果今天是我生命中的末日,我还愿意做我今天本来应该做的事情吗?”当一连好多天答案都否定的时候,我就知道做出改变的时候到了。

  Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

  提醒自己行将入土是我在面临人生中的重大抉择时,最为重要的工具。

  因为所有的事情——外界的期望、所有的尊荣、对尴尬和失败的惧怕——在面对死亡的时候,都将烟消云散,只留下真正重要的东西。在我所知道的各种方法中,提醒自己即将死去是避免掉入畏惧失去这个陷阱的最好办法。人赤条条地来,赤条条地走,没有理由不听从你内心的呼唤。

  About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

  大约一年前,我被诊断出癌症。在早晨7:30我做了一个检查,扫描结果清楚地显示我的胰脏出现了一个肿瘤。我当时甚至不知道胰脏究竟是什么。医生告诉我,几乎可以确定这是一种不治之症,顶多还能活3至6个月。大夫建议我回家,把诸事安排妥当,这是医生对临终病人的标准用语。这意味着你得把你今后10年要对你的子女说的话用几个月的时间说完;这意味着你得把一切都安排妥当,尽可能减少你的家人在你身后的负担;这意味着向众人告别的时间到了。

  I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck anendoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I'm fine now.

  我整天都想着诊断结果。那天晚上做了一个切片检查,医生把一个内窥镜从我的喉管伸进去,穿过我的胃进入肠道,将探针伸进胰脏,从肿瘤上取出了几个细胞。我打了镇静剂,但我的太太当时在场,她后来告诉我说,当大夫们从显微镜下观察了细胞组织之后,都哭了起来,因为那是非常罕见的,可以通过手术治疗的胰脏癌。我接受了手术,现在已经康复了。

  This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope its the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

  No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

  这是我最接近死亡的一次,我希望在随后的几十年里,都不要有比这一次更接近死亡的经历。在经历了这次与死神擦肩而过的经验之后,死亡对我来说只是一项有效的判断工具,并且只是一个纯粹的理性概念,我能够更肯定地告诉你们以下事实:没人想死;即使想去天堂的人,也是希望能活着进去。(笑声)死亡是我们每个人的人生终点站,没人能够成为例外。生命就是如此,因为死亡很可能是生命最好的造物,它是生命更迭的媒介,送走耄耋老者,给新生代让路。现在你们还是新生代,但不久的将来你们也将逐渐老去,被送出人生的舞台。很抱歉说得这么富有戏剧性,但生命就是如此。

  Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

  你们的时间有限,所以不要把时间浪费在别人的生活里。不要被条条框框束缚,否则你就生活在他人思考的结果里。不要让他人的观点所发出的噪音淹没你内心的声音。最为重要的是,要有遵从你的内心和直觉的勇气,它们可能已知道你其实想成为一个什么样的人。其他事物都是次要的。

  When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

  在我年轻的时候,有一本非常棒的杂志叫《全球目录》(The Whole Earth Catalog),它被我们那一代人奉为圭臬。这本杂志的创办人是一个叫斯图尔特.布兰德的家伙,他住在Menlo Park,距离这儿不远。他把这本杂志办得充满诗意。那是在60年代末期,个人电脑、桌面发排系统还没有出现,所以出版工具只有打字机、剪刀和宝丽来相机。这本杂志有点像印在纸上的Google,但那是在Google出现的35年前;它充满了理想色彩,内容都是些非常好用的工具和了不起的见解。

  Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

  图尔特和他的团队做了几期《全球目录》,快无疾而终的时候,他们出版了最后一期。那是在70年代中期,我当时处在你们现在的年龄。在最后一期的封底有一张清晨乡间公路的照片,如果你喜欢搭车冒险旅行的话,经常会碰到的那种小路。在照片下面有一排字:物有所不足,智有所不明(Stay Hungry,Stay Foolish.求知若饥,虚心若愚)这是他们停刊的告别留言。物有所不足,智有所不明——我总是以此自省。现在,在你们毕业开始新生活的时候,我把这句话送给你们。

  Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

  Thank you all very much

  求知若饥,虚心若愚。

  非常感谢!

  Good morning, honored judges. It is my greatest honor to stand here to share my teaching story that affects me deeply .From that thing, I realized that a teacher should have a student’s heart.

  People often say: “Teacher is the engineer of human spirit”. So I was so proud to become a teacher when I graduated from the university. As a new teacher, I felt good and confident at first. Because the knowledge of middle school was so easy. I had thought that I could do better even though I didn’t prepare for the lessons. But that day a little boy named Yu Fangzheng changed my mind completely . I remembered that I taught a topic about sports in Grade 7. At beginning, the students were very active. Because this topic was familiar to them. But suddenly, a boy asked me how to play basketball and the rules of it. At that moment, I couldn’t say a word. Because I had no interest in sports in my daily life and before the class I also didn’t prepare for it. I was so embarrassed and didn’t know what I should do. At that moment, Yu Fangzheng stood up and told the rules, even though the history of the basketball. This thing affects me deeply. It makes me know a teacher shoud have a student’s heart. Teaching is also learning,

  As the greatest educational expert said: “ If you refuse learn from your students humbly, you will not know his growth environment, his ability, his needs; then, you can not teach him well even though you have excellent skills and rich knowledge.” As teachers, we need to " charge ", we should accept opinions of students with an open mind .We should forget our roles when we face to our students. At the same time, we should have courage to be their students , to build our classes together, to study together ,to play together to share happiness and sadness with each other.

  Teaching is learning. I will always be a teacher with a student’s heart .keep learning from my students. I believe that I will be a good teacher in the future. Because I also believe a saying: “there is a will, there is a way!”

  Thank you very much!!

Ladies and gentlemen:

  Good afternoon!

  My name is Ge Jie, I am a construction budget.as a new employee, I am proud to be part of the Linkage Project of New Energy Engineering Co,Lid,OF CCCC Third Habor Engineering Co,Lid(Shanghai).On behalf of the company, I am delighted to take part in this competition. Itisalways a pleasurefor me to have an opportunityto exchange ideas with ourleaders and workers

  As we all know, our enterprise is a professional company in the field of offshore wind power.now,I have a question.do you know offeshore wind power ? yes or no ?ok,let me make a explaination ,offshore wind power is a technology that make use of wind turbine to transform wind energy into electricity.Combining rich wind energy resources and feasible technology , offeshore wind powerhavebecome a rapidly developing marketin recent years.

  today the project whichI am about to introduce is aoffshore wind power project: Zhuhai Guishan Offshore Wind farm,which was just built by our company. The project is located in Wanshan District, Zhuhai, Guangdong ProvinceIts construction cost is 222.53 million yuan, and the installed capacity of this wind farm is 102MW(何时开工,历时多久)The project not only adopts the installation of aeeembled parts technology but also covers two types of wind turbines. This wind farm,which aims tosolve the surrounding island electricity dilemma.is alsoone of the key projects forthe construction of offshore wind power of China Communications ConstructionThird Habor Engineering Co,Lid,

  Moreover, it adopts the foundation of steel tubular jacket, and it is also the first structural foundation of this type used in China. There are four key points in the construction of steel tubular jacket:Extremely high requirements forweldingquality and piling accuracy,Underwater frequency modulation and Underwater grouting.

  In the process of the construction, we explored the “completed sets of technology research and application of offshore wind turbineinstallation” theory,which has been subject to the appraisal of China Water transportation Construction Association. After the evaluation, the association identifies that someof our products lead the world.

  During the construction, there was an episode.ten days before the super typhoon “tiange” struck, Mr Dong Jie—mangerof the project, accurately pdicted that the typhoon would pass through the construction area of the project, according to his many years experience in offshore operations. Therefore, he quickly took measures and avoided asset losses successfully.

  How amazing!

  The project also refreshed the record of wind turbine installation twice. The first time was onJune 10, 20xx when The first two wind turbines wasinstalledwithin 17 hours. Shortly after, Under the bad construction environment, two different models were completed within 13 hours which broke the record again. What’s more,This project has won unanimous praise from the owners, supervisors and suppliers, and they expssed the willingness to cooperate with us more. It also laid a solid foundation for CCCC THIRD HARBOR ENGINEERING Co,Ltd. in the southern offshore wind power market and increased thebrandinfluence of “san hang wind power”。

  In the process of pparing for this competition, , I have a better understanding of companys glorious history and bright prospect,and have a better sense of the hardship and greatness of companys pdecessors .and more and more believe that the future of Sanhang New Energy will Getting better and better!

  Do you like aliens? You maybe say yes. However, I don't want to see them! Then let me tell you the reason for that.

  Actually, there're many on our Earth. However there are few people can see them. Luckily, I am one of those who can see the aliens clearly. Last week, I made a joke on a little alien. I kicked a football and it hit the alien. I ran away quickly and laughed aloud. The little alien is too young .So he always wants to make a joke on me, but I never give him a chance.

  Unluckily, yesterday he met me in English class .I saw him go straight to our English teacher, then he put a figure on sir's head. There will be something terrible happening on me, I thought. Right on cruel sure enough,"THE MONITOR!"The monitor couldn't answer the question. I knew it was my turn "THE PARTNER!"Oh, my god! My English is so poor. How can I answer this question? Suddenly, I saw the little alien. He laughed happily. I regretted making the joke on him.

  I don't want to see aliens again!

  there is a poem written by langston hughes hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die,life is a broken-winged bird. that can never fly.hold fast to dreams, for if dreams go, life is a barren field,frozen with snow. how beautiful it is. yes, we shouldn’t give up our dreams.we shouldn’t give in to the large pressure on the way to realize our dreams.how shall we dorobert h. goddard gave us the answer, “it is difficult to say which is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and reality oftomorrow” youth is not a time of life,it is a state of mind; it is not a matter ofrosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees, it is a matter of the will, aquality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions.it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.youth means a tempera-mental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. this often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. nobody grows old merely by a number of years. we grow old by deserting our ideals. years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. worry,fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spring back to dust. whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of living. in the center of your heart and my heart there is a wirelessstation: so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, you and i will remain young. when the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are upto catch waves of optimism, there is hope you may have young heart at 80.

  青春不是生命的一瞬,它是一种自然的心境;青春不是如花的脸庞、鲜红的嘴唇和健康柔润 的双腿,它是一种意志、想象、精力,更是生命中那生机勃勃的春天。 青春是冲动的勇敢而不是懦弱,青春是挑战的欲望而不是安逸的生活。即使年过花甲,壮心不已.没有人痴长百岁,而伴随着的是我们抛却幻想,锤炼生活的经历。岁月让我们的皮肤起了皱纹,但缺乏激情会让我们的灵魂萎缩。焦虑、恐惧、缺乏自信让心稽首,更让心灵的青春尘封。无论60岁还是16岁,我们每个人都有着天生的好奇心、孩子般刨根追底不厌其烦的渴求欲望、幻想游戏人生的生活方式。在你我心中有着心灵的默契:只要我们的心还能从人们的身上和大自然的怀抱中感受到美丽、希望、快乐、勇气和力量,那么我们依旧年轻无限。当幻想破灭,而你愤世嫉俗,对生活充满悲观情绪,那么你已经老了。即使在20岁的时候,只要你积极乐观的追求你心中的幻想,一直到永远,那么你在80岁的时候仍有一颗永保青春的心。
